6:00 am
17 tenured faculty that support these receptions and we have 12 staff. we started out with three supporting staff. the attendance for that was good, the environment quickly turned hostile. i have this memory of debating with some girl who said abortion is ok because kids are not taught good enough sex education in school. >> first, just focus on reflect life week and the march for life. if you have a really strong
6:01 am
events in respect life week and march for life. if it doesn't do anything else the rest of the year, you'll have a successful group. it's really successful. the march for life is successful. people also come because it is a fun social escape. i really think prolife organizations on campus should focus on the prolife issues. there are other important issues relating to life, i don't think those are as pertinent to young people.
6:02 am
i think it starts to cause conflict in the prolife group and diffuses the main thrust of the group. it's important to focus on abortion. thank you for having me speak. it's great to tell you what we are doing at princeton. we are sponsoring a global warming event. it was like pulling teach to get a professor to speak in favor of global warming but we'll see. thanks a lot. >> thank you all for sticking around today. it means a lot

model after young conservatives from texas club. many of you may be familiar with their style. we held a healthcare forum.

we even got some liberals to show up and had a very good discussion about the role of government and can 2 make healthcare better i think one of the reasons i am concerned about this. we are facing full fledged social ix. this spread the wedge pen elt that america told. you know, joe the plummer.
6:08 am
issues like gay marriage, gay rights are accepted as scule cool. the liberals have given up on those issues they know they are not going to win. they are working very hard to infuse those issues into popular culture. >> our constitution was made only for a moral and religs people, i blobe that is very true. i'm majoring in mechanical engineering. i am very concern. about the tax structure. there's a lot of student that's

6:13 am
i gathered my resources on campus and tried to contact students involved with our crs, college republic cans. they weren't as politically involved in. i knew action had to be taken. i started to research and found
